Instructions for Team Cohesion Exercise
1 – Call a team meeting
2 – Endure the complaints, tell them it will take 25 min.
3 – Before they arrive draw this matrix on a white board/display pad, or you can use the circular drawing from the video, that is the one I use.
4 – Explain to the team this will be a 25 min team building activity with a 10 min break, enjoy the admiration.
5 – Give everyone 8 post it notes, tell them for each category to rate the team on a scale of 1 to 10 by writing their # on a post it note and placing it on the chart. I find it helps if you use different colour post-it notes for each category so if the fall off you know where they belong.
6 – Give them a 10 min break, average out all the number and find out which is the lowest.
7 – Show the team the numbers and then explain you as a team are going to tack the lowest one each week.
8 – Brainstorm for 5 min how to work on the lowest category this week with 3 action everyone could take.
9 – Make a 3 Actions poster
10 – Repeat next week.
